Names parts, tools, and simple facts about the competency.
Evaluates conditions and makes proper decisions about the subject.
Identifies basic facts and terms about the subject.
Acting consistently with the new value.
Integrating a new value into one's general set of values, giving it some ranking
among one's general priorities.
Showing some definite involvement or commitment.
Showing some new behaviors as a result of experience.
Being aware of or attending to something in the environment.
Alpha Scale Values - Any item with an upper case letter (A, B, C, D) by itself is taught as general information on a topic. This information may be related to the
competency or encompass multiple competencies. Examples might include mathematical computations or knowledge of principles such as Ohm’s Law.
A lower case letter indicates a level of ”Knowledge of Skills." Individuals are taught information pertaining to performing a competency . These may be indicated
alone or in conjunction with a numerical scale value. A lower case letter by itself indicates the individual is not required to perform the task-just know about the task.
(example: Can state or explain procedures for doing a task).
Numerical Scale Values - The numbers reflect the levels the individual will be able to perform a competency. Number values are always accompanied by lower
case letters (i.e. 1a, 2b, 3c...etc.) in order to specify the level of knowledge of skills associated with the competency.
Example: An individual with a competency with a scale indicator of 3b has received training of knowledge of skills whereby he or she can determine the correct
procedures and perform with limited supervision; only requiring evaluation of the finished product or procedure.
Asterisk items indicate desired affective domain levels and are used to indicate the desired level for a given competency. They may be used independently or with
other indicators (i.e. 1a-*1, 2c-*3). If used with another indicator, separate with a hyphen.
NOTE: Codes indicate terminal values.
